>>110848097>But had they realized the threat germany would be, it wouldn't be a question, would it?
It was never a question. Everyone knew Germany was militaristic, but guess what? They were hoping they would just attack the soviets, for fucks sakes everyone knew what was happening in 37, it was the year of the spanish civil war.> it wouldn't be a question, would it?
The only reason America joined was that the British empire agreed to dismantle their expansionist machine, meaning America could take advantage of that. If the briths would had never involved, and the japanese were not allied to germany there was literally no reason for america to get involved into the european and african scenarios. War is not fought for moral reasons or hero complexes>I've been to Auschwitz
I have been to disneyland, that doesn't mean the princesses in the pictures were real. The deathcamps are a retarded concept. There's no point on killing slave workforce in times on need, you just work them to death and starve them. But even in the rollercoaster of death was real, it's existence wouldn't change the views of the people, this is the same people that grew up reading about the horrors of the belgium congo and most supported colonialism. Beyond that, just as Americans don't care about children being butchered in Palestine or nuns and Christians being persecuted in Africa right now, but they will sperg over Trump talking ban travels, the people in the 40's didn't care about jews beyond "huh, that's sucks, peoplke can be really mean". People only react to things they are familiar with, that's why a travel ban to muslims offends america more than Obama and Trump bombing schools and children. In this thread we are talking about the biggest problems in the world, and the truth is white supremasy isn't a big deal, compared to American interventionism, future water scarcity, the collapse of extraction-based economies and neoliberalism in the third world.
